Books and Supplies

These costs depend entirely upon the specific courses a student takes. Book/materials costs vary widely from course to course; some are relatively inexpensive and some are not. Nursing students, for example, will pay higher prices for their highly technical books and related supplies (such as clinical uniforms) than a student taking mostly academic transfer courses such as English and history.

Books and supplies will probably cost a MINIMUM of $35.00 per semester hour. Remember, however, that these costs may run considerably higher for certain specialized courses of study. Students needing a more accurate estimate of book costs, based on the specific courses they will take, should contact the Bookstore on campus.

NOTE: NCTC bookstores are transitioning to operation by Follett Higher Education Group, effective Fall 2011. All campuses (Gainesville, Corinth, Flower Mound, Bowie and Graham) will be serviced online by the eFollett.com virtual store site. On-site bookstores will be operated on the Gainesville, Corinth and Flower Mound campuses. Please check the NCTC website at www.nctc.edu and www.efollett.com for hours of operation and other pertinent information.
